Nice find Wayne!

It's a Westover.   I've got an NOS one with the original hang tag.

Does your dial look like Fifth's? 

I've got one of these that needs a redial, and I sure would like to know what it should look like.

Excellent!!

Thank You Jay.

Lisa,

Not sure if there are variants to this model but the Dial showing is original, looking at it closely the numerals could be aged luminous filled which would match Wayne's above.

Just to clarify the picture presented showing Excellency on the dial is not my personal watch. Just a picture I copied from the net.
